Insight and analysis of factors driving prices.
Jet kerosene premiums over gasoil have generally declined in the European market through the first quarter of 2014, reaching their lowest level in at least a year in mid-March. Underlying demand is weak, while cargoes from India and the Middle East Gulf continue to keep Europe well supplied.
The spread between jet kerosene differentials in the barge and cargo markets has narrowed as the supply balance shifted towards imports in the middle of the first quarter. It often narrows when the market becomes more reliant on imported product relative to domestic output, and with diesel margins stronger than jet, northwest European refiners have maximised output of the former at the expense of the latter.
Open market trading in jet kerosene was severely muted compared with previous years in January and February, although activity improved in March. The long-running backwardation in the overall jet price has disincentivised airlines from buying beyond a hand-to-mouth basis.
In March, low water levels on the Rhine river have prevented optimum loading of barges and increased freight rates for jet transport in the region.
